Do you belong to eCommerce industry with expertise in Magento development? If ‘YES’, then you probably have heard about ‘Meet Magento’ - a common name for community-driven events. Meet Magento helps Magento eCommerce platform expand the market to a great extent and also supports internationalization of the same. This event is the actual place where you can get the latest Magento news, discuss ideas and best practices related to eCommerce.
Magento has always proved its mantle in the battlefield of ecommerce, providing the best features in its services and products. Now with the launch of its new platform Magento 2, a debate about adopting it as the superior ecommerce solution has taken the podium. The primary question that is holding back the Magento 1x community is simple, why move to new one when we can do fine where we are?
If you are tired of SAP and Magento replicating data or making duplicate entries, what you need is a connector to synchronize data between the two and stay in sync and in control all the time. A connector helps you have the cake, and eat it as well: you get to continue leveraging your SAP, and also use Magento to sell your products on attractive ecommerce websites. You don’t have to worry about duplicate entries, mixed transactional data and various other issues that arise when using SAP alongside Magento.
It’s been more than a year now since the Magento 2 series got launched. The GA version of Magento 2 launched in November 2015. Magento will most likely quit supporting the 1.x Enterprise Editions in November 2018. Though many existing users of Magento’s 1.x series has upgraded, a majority of the user community is yet to upgrade. People who have invested in getting a new store built in 2015 will not prefer upgrading because upgradation to Magento 2 means a lot of rework from scratch.
Magento 2 is growing rapidly. We will soon be building our client's stores on the platform with extensions. Our Magento payment provider gateway is a mechanism that allows you to integrate your stores with payment service providers. As a result, you can create and handle transactions based on order details.
If you are operating on a B2B model leveraging a digital commerce platform is an absolute must these days. Magento is the world’s most popular, next-generation open-core ecommerce platform and is widely used for B2B as well. Now, out-of-the-box Magento is built for B2C business but due to its unmatched extensibility you can incorporate features to turn it into a B2B store.
Inventory management is a very important part of any ecommerce business. Magento as an ecommerce platform has a very capable inventory management functionality. That one feature which doesn’t come in the out of the box and is often required by mid to enterprise level organizations is multi-warehouse/location inventory management.
The availability of so many extensions has always set Magento apart from other platforms. There are extensions for almost any requirement you might have in your head. Magento had its own dedicated store for extensions Magento Connect. But then Magento 2.0 released in November 2015 and the extensions listed in the connect store were no more compatible with the new series of Magento.
